I have started packaging the font OpenDyslexic [1], which is designed to 
increase readability for readers with dyslexia.

     [1] http://dyslexicfonts.com/

This font has caught the interest of the accessibility team so I started 
maintaining it within that initiative, but you may have interesting 
advices too, so I am forwarding you the ITP.

I have created an initial version of the package:

The font is available in TrueType and OpenType formats, but I did not 
find it useful to distribute both so it is currently a single package 
with the OpenType version. That may not be a relevant choice thought; 
the other two possibilities I identified are:
* providing both formats in the package fonts-opendyslexic;
* building two packages fonts-opendyslexic-otf and 
   fonts-opendyslexic-ttf, maybe both Provides'ing a virtual package 

Any advice?
